I'm really questioning what they guy "sold me" as being Ford's ESP because it's it's administered by "first extended service corp", along with that the guy didn't check the coverage type... not feeling good. Biggest problem is wife wanted to roll the cost into financing and we ended up doing so which means I can't get it out of the loan/payment schedule.

 

I've seen the info on floodford's esp discussed here. I may look into that.

 

I did check with USAA whose extended plan is run by Assurant (which I have mixed opinions on). Given this is through USAA I think I should be OK and the quotes I got on comprehensive coverage for 5-6 year 75k/100k end up being a lot less.

In non-CARB states the hybrid warranty is 8 years - 100,000.

Thanks for pointing out my typing error. I fixed it now.

I bought a PremiumCare 7 year 100K warranty from Flood ESP. Discover Card had a "spend over $1000 get $100 cash back" so I did that. I then tried to purchase an ESP from the Ford website but it indicated that I already had a ESP plan so I know that the Flood ESP is legit. There's just too many little doodads on the car. It cost $1000 out of pocket so to me it's good insurance.

I shopped around for cheap ESP's online and ended up choosing one from a dealer in Springfield MO.  When I bought my FFH at my local Ford dealer, he tried to sell me one and it was double what the other guy said.  I said "No thanks" and being the curious fellow, asked why.  After the little spiel he went to get a manager who told me a little story.  He said that buying a ESP from a Ford dealer means that the dealer has "inspected" the vehicle and verifies the car and VIN number.  Buying a ESP online the Ford Dealer that sold the ESP did not do this, therefore the ESP is null and void.  Maybe this was a scare tactic but after holding my ground because this Ford dealer never cared when they fixed my Expediton, he finally agreed to match this guys price.  I ended up getting the 7 yr 100K plan for around a thousand.

I'm glad I bought one too (actually two) :) For my FFH (so far no need for it since it's still under B2B) and I also bought one for my wife's Explorer and that has already paid for a good amount.

There is little fan that blows inside air over a temperature sensor for the climate control. This thing was making an awful noise (quite common for this MY) so they replaced it. When we dropped of my car my wife was following me and something seemed off with the headlights so I had them check it.
While the Explorer was getting the things taken care of my SA called me and said that the passenger side was stuck on high beam and they had ordered a new headlight assembly.

I would estimate close to 1k for fan and headlight replacement (headlight alone $450) so I would have been pissed without the extended warranty.

Hey corncobs, did you buy the "bulb replacement" coverage as part of your ESP? That's the only extra I bought on my Flood Ford ESP. I had bought one at my dealer when I bought the car, but when I saw the Flood prices, I cancelled it and bought one at Flood for about 1/4 the price I had paid. 5 yr/60K for $550 with bulb coverage.

I never heard of such option so I don't think I have it. I bought mine at the dealer when I picked up my FFH after they pretty much ($50 more IIRC) matched the Flood Ford terms and price.

I hadn't heard of it either and it might be something new because GrySql told me he didn't see it as an option when he bought his ESP at Flood. It could be because of the cost of some of these LED/HID/"special" lights that are being used nowadays. They can be expensive. In my case, I know if a fog light quits, you have to remove the panel under the bumper at least to get to it and if a headlight goes, well, I don't want to mess with that either. So, for $60 for the term of my ESP, if a light goes out, Ford has to change it for me no matter how much work it is, and that includes interior lighting as well. I thought that was well worth $60 for 5 yrs/60K miles.

I agree with HIDs those can get expensive even though they should last at lot longer than regular bulbs. Also with more and more LEDs being installed in new cars that will always be a full replacement when they go bad no question. It even says that in our manual with the tail lights > go see the dealer.

Boy was I wrong about the price on the two items. Surfing on the ford owner website I looked at the Explorer service history and it appears that both items have a combined price tag of $1881.

Yes I bought one but got it for $500 cheaper that what my dealer offered... do a search on the forum for keywords 'extended warranty' as I think there are several threads and many posts on this one that can help get you some more info.

Based on observing others' experiences I am inclined to buy one too. Remember that the price is the same for the ESP for the cheapest Fusion S and the most expensive Fusion Energi Titanium. Those of us with more expensive vehicles have a higher probability of seeing a positive ROI on the purchase of an ESP.

The Hybrid scared me a little with all those instrument  gauge Panels and modules that could go wrong, so I bought the 5 Yr. 60-K Pkg. I got a small discount because I wasn't a happy camper at that point of the sell and I bought it directly from Ford.. I paid $875.00 for the 0 deduction, PremiumCare. We don't put much mileage on our cars anymore.

On my '11 and '12 Fiestas I used Lombard Ford as each approached the end of bumper-to-bumper.  They had the best price at the time.  There is a quote process initially to give you a code that will allow you to see all the possible costs/deducions per plan.  Surprisingly, they weren't "pushy" either!

 

Will I get one on the FFH?  Probably - and I'll get a price from the dealer as well as check out Lombard and Flood (as mentioned here).  NY allows for ESP purchase like this, so I'm golden.

 

<crosses fingers> Hope like heck it comes in next week!  I already ordered all the stuff for the donut spare! <chuckle>

Check out Anderson-Koch Ford as well. They also sell ESPs for around the same price as Flood. Sometimes one is slightly cheaper than the other.

I just priced out PremiumCare 8/75k and Lombard Ford is about $400 higher than Anderson-Koch or Flood. The latter two have the exact same price.

Mine cost $800 for 4 year 125K with $200 deductible.  So far at 42K miles with 18 months through it, so my miles will probably run out before the time does.  A 5/125 would have cost more, and would have been a waste of a year, so consider how many miles you expect to put on, and go by the miles instead of years.
